Shangri-La Al Husn Resort & Spa 

Adult-only clifftop retreat

Beautifully designed with elegance and style, Al Husn is one of the finest hotels on the Arabian Peninsula.

Formerly part of Shangri-La Barr Al Jissah Resort & Spa, Al Husn is now a separate property – with the perk of continued access to the resort’s extensive facilities right on its doorstep. The perfect retreat for a romantic Arabian escape, this hotel is ideal for spending lazy days by the tranquil infinity pool or on the private beach with its commanding views – accessible only to guests staying at Al Husn.
